SPOKANE, Wash. – Spokane City leaders have launched a program to help the homeless population in the city.
The Give Real Change Program hopes to encourage people to give a more holistic solution. City leaders said it will provide new opportunities for people to donate their spare change to homeless services when they see someone who is homeless or panhandling.
Give Help/Need Help signs and orange meters are being installed around the city, according to city officials. One of the meters where you can donate is located at the corner of Main and Post in Downtown Spokane.
The program will benefit a collection of community-based service providers who coordinate shelter, outreach, job placement, training and other services for people who are homeless, according to city leaders.
